Bruce Springsteen recently expressed his support for President Barack Obama in an open letter. Then he played an impromptu song for Obama at a rally in Ohio. And now he’s planning to play a free concert at an Obama event in Virginia this week.

The singer revealed via his website Sunday (Oct. 21) that he’ll perform a free show at Charlottesville’s nTelos Wireless Pavilion as part of the “Obama for America” campaign. Springsteen will be joined by local elected officials and volunteers at the event, which takes place this Tuesday (Oct. 23) at 2PM ET.

“The Boss” expressed his support of Obama in his recent letter, explaining, “We’re still living through very hard times, but justice, equality and real freedom are not always a tide rushing in. They are more often a slow march, inch by inch, day after long day. I believe President Obama feels these days in his bones and has the strength to live them with us and to lead us to a country where … no one crowds you and no one goes it alone.”

Free tickets are currently available at the OFA offices in the Charlottesville area. While the show is free, tickets will be needed to attend the show and will be doled out on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tickets are available at two locations — OFA-Charlottesville on the UVA Campus located at 1325 W. Main St. in Charlottesville and at the OFC-Charlottesville Office at 407 E. Main St. in Charlottesville.
